Another nonstop route has been announced for Indianapolis International Airport. The Frontier Airlines flight to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas joins Southwest and Allegiant with nonstops to the entertainment destination. Nonstop flights continue to be a major target for Indy airport officials.

Executive Director Mario Rodriguez says "our airline partners are investing in Indy, and we're seeing that with the growth of nonstop flights and destinations. That investment is what contributes to the historic year we had in 2016, and increases the value the Indianapolis airport provides to the city and the state."

In January, new nonstops were announced to Austin, Texas and Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Other recently-added nonstop routes include Seattle-Tacoma and San Diego. Many of the destinations have been long sought-after by the business and tech communities in the state.

During an interview with Inside INdiana Business Television in January, Rodriguez said work continues to try to score international nonstops, including London and Frankfurt:
